Hi, I know the default is to have open information for everyone, but is there any way we can disable guest mode on a single server for more private discussions?

What do you mean by guest mode? You can disable public signups on the sidebar of the main page. If you want to make it so that posts are only visible for users that are logged in, then thats not possible (except with http auth or such). But we are planning to implement private communities at some point.

Yes I meant posts are only visible for users that are logged in. I think it adds a lot of value and potential users to be able to have a private community as well 👍

Private communities are going to be added later : https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/187

One example: an admin-only community where they discuss how to run the site.

I’m assuming private communities aren’t federated.
